Hi...I'm a candidate for USMA 2011 and I just took my DoDMERB physical on Thursday. I've had an LOA since August and a nom. since December but had to wait until I turned 18 to go to this exam w/o parental consent. At my exam I was surprised to that the doctor heard a soft heart murmur. I have never heard this from my parents or physician, but me made me listen to the stethoscope--it was there. I'm assuming that my parents knew about this and never told me, so unfortunately it's my fault for not marking it on the medical history as I have done this entire process on my own and simply didn't know about it...I feel kind of guilty about that. Mostly, though, I'm worried about the gravity of the situation. It's clearly not affected my life, as I didn't even know about it, and SOME doctors must not think it's a big deal as my physician never mentioned it to me, plus my mom's an MD and never said anything EITHER! Nor has she mentioned it on any sports forms or anything. Despite the obvious disregard that those 2 have for the condition, what matters to me is what DODMERB thinks. Is this a waiverable condition or is it "all over" for me now? While I know that, ultimately, I have to sit back and see what USMA/DODMERB does about this, I would like to be prepared for what's to come. (Plus it's really nerve-wracking and I would like a concrete answer about how this could affect my candidacy!!). Thanks in advance.
